Provisions / Stores List

What kind of detail is typically required when compliling a stores or provisions list? Can you simply state ie 50 cans food, 5 lb coffee, etc...

or is more detail required? How accurate should it be? Are these ever asked for when checking into a new country?

All you have to do when clearing in is write "Ship's Stores" where they ask for you to declare any cargo. They don't care about your provisions.

If you're carrying an "excessive" amount of alcoholic beverages or tobacco products, they may want to know about that in more detail.

I was never asked for details, EXCEPT in NZ, OZ and New Cal (I am afraid this last country just copying their neighbours' stupid regulations).

This much said, all 3 countries were very clear about what was OK and what was forbidden, so nil problems there.

Not sure that it's at all fair to categorise New Zealand's strict regulations as "stupid", when we have a fragile economy which is highly dependent on the integrity of our agricultural and horticultural industries...

Although it does remind me of the woman arriving at Auckland airport who noticed a fellow traveller, grasping his pocket, being wrestled to the ground and pinned down by three armed security guards. "What did he have in his pocket?" she asked a customs officer, "a knife or a gun?". "No", replied the officer, "a banana..."

Anyway last time I checked, NZ was not in the Atlantic or the Caribbean so you shouldn't have problems there.

The MAF control in NZ and its counterpart in Aus would be a subject for another thread altogether I guess.

I apologize to the regulations for naming them stupid: PLS, no offense. I meant to say: You are strict in a special way!
